Irish Meters Catalogue On-Line
Have you ever looked at a postage meter imprint and said “I wish I knew more about them, but there are no references to the Irish ones”? Well, now there is one. and it is available on-line! The web site is under Wikipedia ( wikipedia.org), page down to wikibooks, then English, Miscellaneous, Recreational, Collecting. Look under partially completed then International Meter Stamp Catalogue. Select Ireland. It is worthwhile to browse through the basic catalog to identify abbreviations and read the introduction. A direct link is https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/International_PostageMeter_Stamp_Catalog/I... however, this doesn’t always seem to work properly.
The catalogue divides meters into four categories:
A. Irish Free State
C. Post Office Meters
D. Parcel Post Meters
Each type imprint is pictured and linked to the type of machine, sorted by machine manufacturer and date. This is a worthwhile addition to the library of any collector of Irish postal history.
